The 10 Best Nursing Scrubs for Women
This wiki has been updated 19 times since it was first published in April of 2018. Like the healthcare providers who wear them, nursing uniforms have to perform through a wide range of activities — stretching, bending, and allowing freedom of movement during long shifts of patient care — while staying sharp and professional looking from one day to the next. Our assortment of women's scrubs includes stylish and practical options for any body type, size, or work environment. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Not every nurse likes the same cut in their scrubs. Some may prefer a more form-fitting cut, while others may prefer a classic, loose-fitting pair. With this in mind, we did our best to include a variety of different options to ensure all of our readers will find something they like here.
While some nurses may only need a few pockets to hold the basics, others may like to keep more essentials on hand. For those, we have included Dickies Gen Flex, WonderWink Origins V-Neck, and Medgear 7897, all of which feature at least eight pockets, and in the case of the Medgear 7897, an impressive 12, so you'll have plenty of room for your stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, and more.
When it comes to scrubs that highlight your feminine form, without being overly sultry or provocative of course, we have the Cherokee Infinity, Pandamed JY1604, and Dickies Xtreme Stretch. Conversely, the Just Love Print Mock Wrap and Dress A Med Classic have a more loose-fitting cut. The Just Love Print Mock Wrap deserves special mention for the attractive prints and patterns it comes in, however you'll want to make sure your healthcare facility allows this kind of uniform before going out and buying it.
The HeartSoul Women's Pitter-Pat is neither overly form fitting nor loose, so it is a good compromise for the woman who wants to be stylish without feeling like they are wearing something inappropriate at the work place. On that note, women shouldn't feel self-conscious or uncomfortable in their work clothes just because they are pregnant, so we have included the Cherokee Maternity, which is made specifically with expecting mothers in mind. It boasts side ties that allow you to adjust the fit as your bump grows, and high-waist, pull-over bottoms that are very stretchy.
Uniform Advantage Butter Soft Jogger BSS708 The stretchy UA Butter Soft Jogger offer a relaxed fit through the hips, cuffed leg openings, and a comfortable knit waistband. They are available in sizes ranging from extra small to 5XL, as well as petite and tall length options, so there should a pair to fit every body type. uniformadvantage.com
Mediclo Amelia The top of the Mediclo Amelia features three utility pockets that allow for quick access, as well as a zippered pocket for valuables and other items you don't want to take the chance of losing. A side split hem provides freedom of movement, while the rounded bottom and V-neck give it a bit of style. You will have to purchase the pants separately, though. mediclo.com
